Apparently the team responsible for the Jeopardy-playing supercomputer Watson had to do some clean-up work after IBM’s AI learned the contents of Urban Dictionary. The Watson devs thought their AI could benefit from seeing the ways in which humans experiment with and redefine various words, though it apparently just confused Watson on the politeness of a few choice words. While the team may not have been fans of the supercomputer’s penchant for swearing, we’re just glad to see humanity one step closer to bringing Bender Bending Rodriguez into the real world.
